"City Life" is a collaboration between guitarist Robben Ford and drummer Jerry Granelli, an all instrumental jazz and fusion project which was partially recorded in 1988 and partially recorded in 1992. "City Life" also features stellar artists contributing to the music, including guitarist Bill Frisell, synthesist Ralph Towner, trombone player Julian Priester, bassist Charlie Haden, alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett and more. Sharp-eyed fans will remember these tracks released under the album title of "Blues Connotation" back in the mid-1990's, and now these tracks are finally available again. Shortly after the recording of these tracks, Ford returned to his devotion to the blues, so this fusiony improv style wasn't to be heard again in a long time.
